I am a 32yr old stay at home mom of three (ages 4,6,8 ), married for over 11 years. We currently live in Washington, we will be moving to Germany late this fall. My husband is in the Army.
I have been dealing with pain in the coccyx for over a year after falling while redoing hardwood floors. I use a nylon donut and a rubber one too, although they don't offer much relief. I now have lower back pain from sitting with most of my weight on one hip or the other! I also sit propped on my side, more of a leaning position. I don't think many realize who much being able to sit in any chair is over looked. I look at chairs now with dread, wondering how am I going to sit without hurting my rump too much.
The hardest thing for me is having some family who don't believe my pain is real. That there are nothing that could be done about it, and that I just have to live with it. I have had this for over a year, and I don't want to continue living with this pain.
I am glad that I came across this site, and am hopeful for some support from others who understand.
- Coccydynia (tailbone pain) - Slight dislocation.
- X-rays, MRI, and more X-rays.
- Nothing muscular, nothing neuro, slight dislocation
- Trazadone (insomnia), being weaned from Effexor XL to Welbutrin (depression and possible pain relief). I stay at home and can't handle the stronger stuff with small shildren.
- April 2007, re-doing the floor in daughters bedroom, husband removed the floor vent, I stepped in it and fell directly on my tailbone, on the hard wood floor! Have just dealt with the pain! My husband deployed to Iraq a month later, so no one really heard me complain. When he returned in May '08, he got tired of hearing me complaining about my pain, and told me to go to the doctors.
- Got first corticosteriod injection this morning! (8/14/08). (Have questions for those who have had these before)
- PCP and Orthopedics
